OrthoLive has announced a partnership with ELLKAY to enhance interoperability and improve efficiencies for providers who use the OrthoLive application to provide telemedicine services.
Telemedicine has experienced a rapid increase in demand due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to an American Hospital Association IT supplement survey, 76 percent of U.S. hospitals are fully or partially implementing a computerized telehealth system, up from just 35 percent in 2010. OrthoLive sought integration between its OrthoLive app and its providers' electronic medical records systems.
ELLKAY is a nationwide leader in healthcare connectivity and has made interoperability a top priority since 2002. This partnership allows providers to pull all pertinent information from an electronic medical record into the telehealth app, making for a seamless telehealth visit for both the provider and patient. ELLKAY has successfully integrated electronic medical records to hospitals and health systems, laboratories, radiology systems, financial systems, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation facilities and registration and scheduling systems.
ELLKAY's solutions are focused on bringing partners together to increase interoperability for hospitals, health systems, laboratories, payers, vendors and ambulatory care settings.
